To Mr Collingwood Forster Attorney at law in Alnwick                          Newcastle 16 June 1761


Edwd Reay became tenant to Sr Wr Blackett, not by executing the old attornm[en]t dated May 1758, but a new & separate one dated as I remember the 8th inst; But as Mr Robson has not yet sent it back f[ro]m Walling[to]n I cannot be certain of that nor tell you in whose presence he executed the same. I have wrote to Mr Robson & shall let you have an answer to these particulars as soon as I can. An Ejectm[en]t was served on Edw[ar]d Reay by me on the 1st May 1758; being the same time the other tenants were served. As Sir Wr & Mr Ord have now agreed upon <suing> out a Com[issione]r to examine in chief this summer, Mr Widdrington is at a stop for want of the copies of the bill & answer & other papers wch Sr Wr wrote to Mr Scott for, & wch you told me at Walling[to]n he had given you, & therefore you will please to send them by the first opportunity to  Dear Sir   yours &c  HR
